How To Setup Your Web Hosting Account

Last Updated on January 27, 2021 by Steve

We try to make the signup process at Best WordPress as simple as possible with most accounts being automatically provisioned (as long as your billing goes through successfully). Some accounts are not automatically provisioned due to the nature of the product or service.  If an account or service is not designed to be automatically provisioned it will say so on product/service order form.

Step 1: Select Your Web Hosting Package:

At Best WordPress Solutions we offer a multitude of WordPress based products. For this tutorial we will focus on our shared hosting packages.  We currently have four different basic cloud web hosting packages.  The main difference between the four is the number of websites you can host with each as well as the resources allocated.

Obviously, the more resources allocated, the more visitors your website can receive.  If you need a web hosting package for more than 100,000 monthly visitors, you should checkout our VPS Hosting packages.

Step 2: Choose Your Primary Domain:

We have three different options when it comes to choosing your primary domain for your web hosting package:

  • Register a new domain – This gives you the option to register a brand new domain for your web hosting package.
  • Transfer your domain from anther registrar – If the domain you’re wanting to use is already registered somewhere else (i.e. GoDaddy, NameCheap) then you have the option to transfer it over to Best WordPress Solutions.  This makes for the simplest setup as our team can ensure the DNS is working correctly.
  • I will use my existing domain and update my nameservers – For those of you that already have your domain registered and would like to be responsible to updating your own nameservers, you select this option.  Some people may have multiple domains registered with someone such as GoDaddy and would prefer to keep them separate from their web hosting.

Step 3: Configuration Options:

Some of our products have configurable options/add-ons such as the purchase of static IP, management services, plugin packs etc. The options available will vary from product or service being purchased.  Select the option you want and continue.

Step 4: Review Order And Checkout:

Step 4: Access Your Hosting Package In Our Client Interface

Our client portal is very powerful as it gives you full control over your hosting package with us at Best WordPress Solutions.

The links under the “Actions” menu on the left are very important.  This is how you can easily access cPanel via single sign-on meaning you don’t have to login again. You can also easily access our WordPress Management tool on the left.  This tool is available in our shared WordPress hosting plans.

If you have pre-sales question or have any difficulty in the product/service order process, please contact us by opening support ticket.
